Hi! If anyone ever checks this I'm Bob, and I only recently started looking at this site. I definitely feel that TNG is the best of the spin offs. Patrick Stewart is a phenomenal actor so he's great to watch. Some of favourite characters though are Data, Riker and Dr. Crusher. I always felt Wil Wheaton took too much heat from fans. They seemed to hate the fact that Wesley, a kid, helped save the day several times even though it was made clear that he was a child prodigy with a genius level IQ. The one I really miss is Tasha Yar. She was gorgeous. Worf I liked in combat episodes or when he's struggling to recover his family's honour. However, outside of those shows they didn't seem to know what to do with him, so he became the comic relief character. Although he was great at it! Especially in Qpid, Fistful of Datas and Cost of Living.
Among my the episodes I love the most, Parallels, Yesterday's Enterprise, Conundrum, Realm of Fear and Redemption part I and II stand out. As well as The Hunted and Gambit parts I and II.
No one "checks this" in any formal way but a lot of forum regulars including your faithful Moderator like to read who's joining the party. Welcome aboard, the beer today is on your tab.
When I visit this forum, I check out this thread, when there are new replys.
Riker is my favorite by far. I've tried many times to grow that kind of beard but it comes in patchy.
I've started watching TNG relatively recently, and I love it. My favorite character is definitely Data. I really like watching him grow and change. Another thing I like about Data is that he puts humanity in perspective when he attempts to understand it.
I also don't mind Wesley Crusher. I have never found him to be too annoying.
I also like Worf and how Klingons are portrayed in TNG. The episode "A Matter of Honor" is pretty cool to me in that it displays Klingon culture in a presentable way, rather than simply barbaric.
I am on season 4 at the moment, and really enjoying it.
The name is Steven, I'm an aspiring Chef living in Los Angeles. Love TNG and watched every episode probably two or three times. I'm 25 so maybe I'm a little out of my element age-wise since I don't see too many other trekkies my age but oh well. DS9 is good (after S2 IMO) and VOY could have been wrapped up a lot sooner.
Yup. Got my own synthehol on 10 forward (but Guinan's got me hooked up)! TNG yes!
I started when S4 was first broadcast in the UK, and loved it from the get-go. I'm not sure why I resisted tuning in before this, but a friend convinced me to watch.
I feel its the best of the Trek shows, not necessarily because of the stories (though there are some excellent hours of television in the 7 year run), but for me, at that time in my life, it felt like the Ent-D was somewhere I could belong, somewhere I wanted to be, and I liked spending time with a group of people who were friends, professionals, and excellent at what they did.
My head tells my that DS9 is the "better" show, but my heart will always belong to TNG.
Hello everyone! I started out as a TNG fan back when it was airing on TV, from elementary school until high school. I spent my teens obsessing over it.
I was always a science geek (studied astronomy in university), so my favourite character was and still is Data. However, I found myself a fan of Patrick Stewart as Picard. I was never really a fan of Troi, though. I've met Marina Sirtis and Michael Dorn (as well as James Doohan, who did appear in an episode). My goal now is to actually speak to Wil Wheaton, since he's a big geek and from the same generation as me. I'm a bit younger than him. I'm 39.
I lived in Japan for 11 years until earlier this year, so I'm getting back into Star Trek. Japan is rather devoid of Trek.
Hello everyone, Ive been a Star Trek fan all my life. Ive been watching TNG since I can remember, and from there I branched out into the other series. My favorite character is Geord Laforge, with Data being a close second....but I also love Tasha Yar, Dr. Crusher, and Captain Picard....and like most people, I don't really like Wesley or Dr. Pulaski lol. Starship Mine is my favorite episode, ever since I first saw it, though it wasnt the first episode I saw, but its the first one that stands out in my mind...I think its probably the most underrated episode in TNG.
Well, I'd been a fan of TOS growing up, so when TNG started it's first airing on the Beeb, I tuned in. Unfortunately I lost interest several weeks in. I came back mid-season 3 and started to enjoy it again. (I have since seen all the episodes as I have it on dvd). I think I came back in around Tin Man?
